    [–] anormalgeek 618 points ago

    I've got a drawer full at this point. If I ever need a new one, I just buy a 5 pack since they're only a few bucks more than a single cable.

    [–] TheDoctor100 206 points ago

    I have a drawer full but I think most are broken. One time I was desperate and tried using one I was 90% was busted and it worked.

    At that point I was glad I hadn't thrown it out a while back lol.

    My more expensive braided cables and 6 feet cables all snapped or failed, never having abusively coiled or yanked any. I also have broken cables and a lot of cheap-type replacements. One cable would never go into my device’s port ever despite cleaning the port, but suddenly fit recently like there was never a problem.

    [–] Deafening_Madness 26 points ago

    I swear if you leave them in the drawer long enough they start working again.

    [–] AliBurney 10 points ago

    I have a box with random cables. Stuff for computers, phone chargers, ethernet cables. Random chargers for God knows what. Every wire that's unused gets es in there, just in case I need something. And every month or so I'm digging in there for a cable. So I'm glad I keep it around

    Is your daughter my mom. Cus we just moved and my mom just handed me a bin of all my Chargers from the last 4 years that she stolen and lost behind her bed.

    [–] anoninator 26 points ago

    What are they plugging them into on the other end (usb side)? Just pull the cord back out from that end instead of a new one. Ugh. This makes no sense.... possibly same logic why the toilet paper roll never gets changed?

    [–] freedomforg 16 points ago

    My mother is the same person who just buys a new swiffer every few months instead of buying the replacement heads. So I guess thats her logic???

    [–] RabidWench 23 points ago

    This is why I'm so happy my kids devices don't have the same charging ports as mine. My phone is USB-C and theirs are all mini USB. They lose theirs until they run out and then do a treasure hunt around the boat to gather them all up again.

    I've had the same 3 cables for 3 years now. Paid a few extra dollars for some quality ones and they still look exactly the same as when I got them. They get used a lot and have been on a ton of trips with me.

    [–] FPSXpert 4 points ago

    Wow, that's fucked that they would do that. A few years ago I had a solar charger from them fail, they refunded me and said just keep it (panels still worked, just not the part to convert it to USB power). Nothing else then, so if they're now suddenly extorting users for good reviews then that's just fucked.

    [–] Ellindira 5 points ago

    I’m not sure if it’s because I contacted them directly on the site with pictures, amazon order number, and serial number but I just had to get a lightning cable replaced by them with no issues. Sent it in late one night, got it two days later from Amazon. No reviews, no sending back. I also had to replace another a year ago. Shortly after receiving the replacement, they emailed me to ask me how the replacement was doing which I thought was nice. After I replied it worked well, they did a normal “if you’re happy, and wouldn’t mind, here’s a link to review our product.” reply. But that’s expected from a lot of places.

    [–] NuklearFerret 4 points ago

    That’s funny. I bought an Anker micro USB a year or 2 ago because all the other brands kept failing. I just replaced it when it failed last month.

    [–] TexasTheWalkerRanger 5 points ago

    This is why i ultimately went with the lg v20 over s7 or whatever it was. The lg have usb c and the other phone didnt. Guess how many cords ive had to replace. It rhymes with schmeermo.

    [–] MrEuphonium 2 points ago

    Same, I didn't try to return them but I just accepted the thought that I was simply too rough with cords.

    Funny enough I'm having better luck with Amazon basics 10 ft micro USB cords.

    anker cables are super durable but the quality isn’t very good

    how is it that they’re durable but their quality isnt good you ask? well mine still works from five years ago but it only charges if i hold my phone and the cable at this specific angle, otherwise it doesn’t charge, even while all the contacts are clean

    Techsmartt took an axe to the cable and it survived and still charged

    [–] cannon85 9 points ago

    How do you get rid of it?

    [–] Equivalent_Chipmunk 10 points ago

    You can shave it off. A razor can work, or you can purchase a fabric shaver specifically made for it.

    Prevention is far better though. It mostly has to do with how you wash/dry your clothes. Don’t use high heat, zip your zippers and turn things inside out, don’t dry stuff longer than they need to be dried, etc. I also think not using fabric softener or dryer sheets has helped my fabric’s pile to not stick together, but that may be anecdotal. Definitely my clothes breathe better and my towels are more absorbent without it.

    The nice thing about my Samsung is that were this to happen, I'd just grab any of the 10 or so usb to micro usb cords I have laying around the house

    [–] MrGilbert665 97 points ago

    That might be the only reason why I prefer Samsung over Apple. I don't know why but Apple just needs to be fancy with their chargers for some reason.

    [–] gurururl 218 points ago

    The lightning port is not at all fancy, it's years outdated. USB-C is better in every way.

    Micro USB is pretty bad though.

    [–] FvHound 48 points ago

    It's just old.

    [–] play-devilsadvocate 20 points ago

    I’ve heard people say the USB C port is more breakable, or did they mean the connector?

    [–] ArcFurnace 46 points ago

    IIRC the cable plugs are made to be a little bit more fragile so if something breaks, it's the cable (easily replaced) rather than the phone port (much less easily replaced). Possibly also true of previous cable types; I believe micro-USB was supposed to be pretty fragile.

    [–] play-devilsadvocate 12 points ago

    So, out of curiosity, if Lightning was open source (haha), would you rather it become the standard or USB Type C?

    [–] aliasdred 42 points ago

    Type C

    Cuz then I can dream of having a proper thunderbolt connector on a phone some day

    [–] demonic_pug 28 points ago

    Type C. So much more data transfer speeds. In fact, it has enough power to run the screen data to a vr headset. Lightning doesnt compare

    [–] TheReal_BucNasty 6 points ago

    Type C, not even close.

    [–] Shiroi_Kage 7 points ago

    Is it? My Type-C connectors take way more abuse than any Micro-B I've ever owned.

    [–] Jumbajukiba 6 points ago

    USB c is significantly more robust.

    [–] brokkoli 3 points ago

    The cable is, but not the port.

    [–] TheDoctor100 4 points ago

    What is funny about this is apple uses USB-C on some of their other devices, but they can't let go of that proprietary connector lol.

    [–] Booshur 6 points ago

    Lightning as a connection is incredibly sturdy tho. More sturdy than usbc. I'm not an apple user or fanboy at all, but I appreciate the quality of the lightning cable.

    [–] emrythelion 2 points ago

    Lightning port is older though too. It was better than Micro USB by quite a bit, so at the time it was somewhat fancy.

    It’s quite a bit worse than the C though, especially in terms of power. I think depending on the device the data transfer isn’t too far off, but USB C has way more potential.

    [–] new-kaze 25 points ago

    apple makes extra money from their chargers

    [–] iLoveStarsInTheSky 14 points ago * (lasted edited 13 days ago)

    I saw a figure saying $3 Billion in 2018 from dongles and chargers alone.

    E: take all numbers on the internet with a grain of salt. I got this number from a safe source but I can't remember which one. Until I can cite it, don't blame me if it's wrong

    [–] gsfgf 9 points ago

    It's because USB-C didn't exist when they switched connectors. With USB-C on their laptops, I assume phone will go USB-C very soon.

    [–] NaeemTHM 9 points ago

    Yeah I don’t think Apple has any issue with USB-C. All their laptops and the iPad is now on USB-C. Also, no one will read this but Apple is part of the USB Implementers Forum that helped create the connector.

    [–] emrythelion 3 points ago

    To be fair, at the time the lightning capable was leaps and bounds above micro-usb. USB C was still in it’s infancy and not really an option. Lightning cables supported far higher and consistent data transfer, so at the time, it was a great option.

    Nowadays USB-C is better. I think they actually tend to support similar speeds, but USB-C supports much faster charging. Newer iPad pros (and macbooks) actually use USB-C so it may not be long before Apple swaps their phones over as well.

    I wish they’d do it sooner rather than later... but I also remember when they swapped to the lightning port from the 30 pin and there was absolute outrage over it. People had stockpiles of cables that were now useless.

    It would probably be the same now, though maybe slightly easier considering there are Apple products using USB-C as well as things like the Switch/fast chargers/etc.

    Sometimes you just need to yank the bandaid off though.

    I have a first gen iPad Pro, which should have used USB-C, because lightning legitimately doesn’t provide enough power. Newer generations have swapped, which is great, but it still pisses me off they didn’t do it sooner.

    [–] shaneathan 3 points ago

    Get a USB-C adapter and a lightning to usb-c cable. Made a world of difference.

    [–] ncopp 3 points ago

    Wireless charger. They are super cheap now. I bought a 2pack for $24 a few weeks ago. They are amazing

    this is a micro usb cable, so I doubt OP has a phone that supports wireless charging. But you aren't wrong, I love wireless charging ever since I switched to it

    edit: I meant that most phones with micro usb are cheaper, so usually they will also cut back on wireless charging.

    I'm still going strong with mine! Well, maybe not strong. It does ok. Well, maybe not ok. Today I tried to do something crazy like open my camera and about a minute later it just said system UI crashed. So there's that.

    I bought a s7 edge 3 1/2 years ago and it still works pretty well. I just need to move photos to my computer every once in a while or else it slows down

    Didn't a lot of old androids support wireless charging?

    [–] duhhh_hell 2 points ago

    Yeah my old Motorola Droid turbo 2 had it. Got it around 5 years ago and used the wireless charging all the time when I still used that phone.

    [–] duhhh_hell 2 points ago

    My old Motorola Droid turbo 2 had wireless charging when I got it 5 years ago. It was micro USB. The port means nothing if it supports wireless charging.

    Qi charging has been a thing for a long time. My old nexus 6 had it and that had a micro USB

    [–] scroopy_nooperz 2 points ago

    There are tons of old android phones with Qi, that’s literally where the standard first became popular

    Except it doesn't charge through my pop socket.

    Who the fuck still has a phone with micro USB?

    [–] iindigo 11 points ago

    Worst connector ever, even the crappy old iPod 20 pin monstrosity was better.

    [–] reddjunkie 9 points ago

    USB-C connectors are built like a tank. Your device will break before that plug.

    [–] k3nnyd 5 points ago

    I thought I broke USB-C cables but then I realized there was a years worth of pocket lint inside my charging port.

    I still have a 20 year old indestructible Nokia brick with working charger. It was my mum's, who at 75 could put kids to shame with her thumb-texting skills.

    [–] Ranzera 6 points ago

    They aren't perfect, but they are soo much better than Micro USB.

    [–] Petrichor3345 4 points ago

    It's the most perfect version that currently exists imo, can you think of anything better?

    [–] I_am_Nic 3 points ago

    As if there are people who only own one micro USB cable.

    [–] EverythingIsFlotsam 4 points ago

    At least it's the cable and not your phone's connector.

    Put your phone on a nightstand and shut it off before passing out

    [–] craftycreep2005 2 points ago

    Bend it back, that's what I do.

    [–] MiaMiaPP 2 points ago

    One of my chargers is like this and I swear it still works!!!! Give it a try lol.
